, not by james. but he was the president of the arkansas right to life group. he headed up in arkansas an effort to amend the state's constitution to ban all abortion. even in instances where the pregnancy could hurt the mother or where it was caused by incest or where it was caused by rape. the idea that being a rape victim might be enough to excuse you from the state forcing you to carry a child to term, that idea really got under james leon holmes' skin. he wrote a letter once to the editor of the moline daily dispatch explaining people should stop worrying about rape victims in cases like this. he said, quote, concern for rape victims is a red herring because conceptions from rape occur with approximately the same frequency as snowfall in miami. that's james leon holmes. he wrote that in 1980. during the george w. bush administration, president bush gave him a lifetime appointment as a federal judge. james leon holmes is now the chief judge of the eastern district federal court in the state of arkansas. >> this is clayton williams. in 1990, clayton williams was the republican candi
